BOOK, MUSIC, AND LYRICS BY JONATHAN LARSON
DIRECTED BY DEWEY SCOTT-WILEY | MUSCIAL DIRECTION BY CHRIS COCKRELL | CHOREOGRAPHY BY TERRANCE HENDERSON
Trustus’ 37th season is off and running, and it only gets better in the new year! Coming up next on our Thigpen Main Stage is another Trustus favorite making its return: tick, tick… BOOM! This autobiographical musical by Jonathan Larson, the Pulitzer Prize- and Tony Award-winning composer of RENT, is the story of a composer and the sacrifices that he made to achieve his big break in theatre. The show features Trustus Company Members Michael Hazin and Katie Leitner as Jon and Susan, newcomer Andrew Mullin as Michael, and reunites the team behind one of Trustus’ most beloved shows, RENT: Dewey Scott-Wiley, Chris Cockrell, and Terrance Henderson. Containing fourteen songs, ten characters, three actors and a band, tick, Tick… BOOM! takes you on the playwright/composer’s journey that led to a Broadway blockbuster.
Tick, tick… BOOM! is sponsored by Prisma Health. A talkback on “coping with the anxiety and the pressure to succeed” will follow the February 6th matinee at 5:15pm, and will include Dr. Rachel Brown, Medical Director of Prevention and Wellness, Prisma Health Business Health Solutions, as well as creatives from the show. All are welcome to attend the talkback.
